“Power Pac” (poem / poetry)

Ghosts and ghouls are lurking nearby,

Intent on disturbing my journey, oh my!

Still I press on, with hope at my core,

Determined to survive and settle the score.

I connect the dots, digesting their points,

Navigate, and try harder not to disappoint,

I reach a power pellet, as well as some fruit,

My strength multiplies, and the ghosts are consumed.

I saw my eldest Son playing a new version of the 1980’s classic game “Pac-Man” today, and it got me reminiscing about my childhood memories playing it. It’s awesome to think that my kids are enjoying a game that has been around 40 years now, that I grew up with.

After a while of him playing, I began to wonder just how crazy it would be to be a part of this crazy maze-like World, that Pac-Man must exist in and battle through in order to stay alive. At that point, I started constructing parallels between his reality and ours.

How would I deal with similar challenges to his, and what strategies could I employ to best secure my survival and progress? It was a rewarding experience, bringing about both this piece, and a general reinvigoration of purpose.

So, don’t let the spooks scare you from doing what you were born to do, plot your path, use your instincts, nourish yourself, use every skill and advantage at your disposal, and don’t wait to be trapped or caught, instead, take the game to them, my friends, with belief and vigour!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
